Prepare a professional looking resume. Have it ready for whenever you need it. If you can, treat your treasury job search as a full-time job until you find a new position. Here are a variety of avenues to pursue with your treasury job search:
Network, network, network. In person: Talk to whoever you know and let them know you are seeking a position. Tell them what it is you can do. If they do not know anyone, ask them if they know of anyone. You never know what awaits via word of mouth. Join local business networking groups. Even if you are seeking an entry level position, members love to help other members. They take pleasure in seeing success. Join local chapters of your professional organization. Talk with other professionals in your field. Volunteer your services in an area you are interested in. Once again, you never know who you are going to meet.
Online: post to forums regarding topics of your professional interest, join online groups in your professional organization; join social networking groups, and post to message boards. Visit individual corporations and government websites for job listings. Post your resume online at all of these. Have your resume become a part of their resume bank.
Offline: Read newspaper classifieds, trade journals, The Wall Street Journal, small periodicals, subscribe to financial publications such as The Finance Manager.
Do not concentrate only in one of the above areas during your treasury job search. You need to diversity to cover all your bases and obtain the best results. Good luck!
